All Religion is Bad


We are not at war with Islam. That's true. We are not even at war with violent jihadist extremist Islam. War is not the right medium for handling murderous terrorism. These are violent crimes best handled by police, the way organized crime is handled.

But that doesn't mean some Islam is OK. All religion is bad. Sure, it might not make most people kill innocents. But it does make people waste their lives waiting for some eternal salvation that will never come. Why do anything useful with your life if you will have all of eternity to write that novel you always wanted to write? Right? Religion makes people waste entire Saturdays and Sunday mornings (depending on the religion). Religion makes people hate other people whose religion is different, even if they don't commit murder based on that hate.

Christians commit bigotry all the time. It's maybe not quite as bad as murder, but it is still hateful and hurts people. For example, the anti gay rights lot. They make me as sick to my stomach as ISIS does.

Fundamentalist religion makes people dumb. A perfect example is Creationism. Belief in Biblical Creationism is willful ignorance of scientific fact (evolution). There's also the damage inflicted on the Earth when you believe that God gave you dominion over the land and its plants and animals, to exploit them as you see fit, and if you do happen to ruin the soil, water, and air, then God will save you? (Fact: She won't.)

All religion is a waste of time and lives and destructive to the advancement of humanity, even if it is not blatant killing in the name of some fabricated mythical deity. Without religion, humanity would be much better off and more advanced intellectually and scientifically than we are now.

I call upon all the religions of the world to reject, condemn, and disenfranchise their extremists, with extreme prejudice. You simply are not doing enough and that makes your religion culpable. You can't say you are a Christian and then let other Christians hate gays and women. Shut 'em down.


Throw Space Dog (Foster) a Bone!

It was supposed to be a simple teeth cleaning and nail trim under anesthesia for everyone's favorite space dog, Foster.

Until the vet decided to spend two hours pulling a bunch of his teeth at the charlatanic rate of $300/hour.



Now Space Dog is broke and can't afford simple things like treats and tennis balls and the soft canned dog food he has to eat for two weeks because of the stitches and way fewer teeth!

Can you throw Space Dog a bone or two to help pay for the oral surgery and subsequent recovery?

Then I can keep throwing the tennis ball for him for years to come.

You know he will love you long time for it.

Science "Proves" God Does Not Exist

Science cannot prove anything. But it can disprove things. In fact, it is great at disproving things and when it does its job well, it comes really close to proving things WRONG.

Religious people make an argument for their fictional deity by saying science cannot prove God does not exist. But science cannot prove any non-existent things exist. That's not the right question. Science can’t prove Martians do not exist. So what?

But science can DISPROVE that Martians exist with scientific observation and experimentation, quite handily.

The same is true for God. Science can DISPROVE God exists. It’s quite simple really. You just design an observational experiment and run it.

For example…

1. If the Christian God exists, one should observe statistically fewer natural disasters in areas with a high concentration of devout fundamentalist Christians.

2. After repeated observation, no statistical difference in the occurrence of natural disasters is found between Christian dense and Christian sparse geographical areas.

3. Thus the existence of God is disproved.

You conduct several such experiments to strengthen your disproof of God.

Perhaps you do a clinical trial of patients with a horrible disease, giving them all medicine, but telling the Christian ones to pray their diseases away for that extra benefit of prayer to their God. If the Christians die at the same rate as the non-Christians, God is disproved. It’s all quite simple and easy to disprove God.
